Here we are! I’m married to Holly (née Olsen). Our children are Heidi, Steven, one who wishes to remain nameless, and Caroline. Heidi is married to Mike Hughett, and they have two children (our grandchildren), Skyler and Sage. We also have various pets in our family.

My father passed away in 2002. Here is a brief, virtual memorial to him, but he lives on in our memories and in the memories and lives of all whom he touched.
Here are some pictures of Holly. In the leftmost, she's on a ship at sea. The next picture is of her on a hill overlooking a bay in French Polynesia (Tahiti). The middle picture is her on a riverboat on the Sacramento River. The second from the right is her and our daughter Caroline holding our dog Scout and cat Puff. The rightmost shows Holly before the library at Ephesus, which we visited when I was attending the PETRA conference in Samos. Fitting, as she is on the Library Advisory Board for Yolo County.
Here are some pictures of Heidi. She’s holding Skyler and Sage in the second to right picture.
Here are some pictures of Steven. The bunny in the left one was his pet, Thumper (who passed away, and is much missed). The second one shows him clowning with Skyler and Sage, and the third with Skyler. Mom is beside him in the fourth.
My third child asked me not to post any pictures in which he was the focus.
Here are some pictures of Caroline. The second picture is Caroline walking at her high school graduation. The third one is her with me at her senior Father-Daughter weekend. In the final one, she is helping an obviously intoxicated Minnie Mouse stuffed toy out to the car at her mom’s birthday party.
Here are some pictures of Mike. In the middle picture, he is holding Sage. On the right, he’s with Skyler.
Here are some pictures of Skyler. He has just eaten something (chocolaty, I think) at a block party in the second. He’s with Sage in the third picture, and wearing his Indiana Jones hat with a Disneyland character towering over him in the fourth.
Here are some pictures of Sage. We took the picture with the stuffed snake at Caroline’s graduation. The third picture was taken at Disneyland, with Sage wearing an Alice-in-Wonderland dress. In the rightmost one, she is holding Fuzzy III.
Here are some pictures of our pets. The first two pictures are of Scout (full name: Springhill’s Leading Lady), our Bearded Collie. Then come two of Puff, a Persian Himalayan cat; she’s catching some rays in the second. In the next-to-last picture, Fuzzy III, our rabbit, is gawking at the camera (hey, that’s how a rabbit gawks); and in the last picture, one of our chickens is checking out the yard.
One of our cats, Fur, died on December 4, 2011. Here is a brief memorial. He, like Thumper, is missed by everyone—including his friends, the other pets.
Well, that’s us! Thanks for visiting.
